“This design is inspired by the sheer experience of Opera. Opera can be playful, prayerful, haunting, and incredibly versatile. One seems to move through a range of emotions. This is the way I interpret its music in my design – by the emotion it stirs. I have attempted to recreate melody, the high and low notes sung by legendary Soprano Maria Callas.” added Reena, expressing the inspiration behind her work.

“Through this piece I want to create a feeling of being suspended in space, surrounded by music. This piece is made in 18K , 510 grams of white gold and set with 101.0 carats of white diamonds clustered together to give a dazzling effect. It also has Red Enamel work, another element I strongly associate with Opera.”
